Want to sell plus size clothes but don't have a plus size model? Clothing website AliExpress have just come up with a super offensive solution.

The product photo for their plus size 5XL leggings shows a slim woman standing with both her feet through one of the trouser legs, while stretching out the waistband to its full size.

The mind boggles.

But wait, it gets even weirder.

The site also features a photo of a woman wearing the leggings properly. You know, with one leg through each hole.

Which raises the question - why was there any need for the weird first photo at all?

Did they just want to show how stretchy the fabric was? Is this how people are wearing leggings now? Are they actually a pencil skirt in disguise?

Would you buy these leggings based on this picture? Let us know in the comments section below.
